Dubai Future Foundation, (DFF), has appointed five Dubai government organisations as strategic partners to the Dubai 10x initiative.
The five partners - Dubai Media Office, the Department of Economic Development, the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM), Smart Dubai Office, and Dubai Electronic Security Centre (DESC) - along with Dubai Future Accelerators - will support the second stage of 10x.
The initiative was launched in 2017 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai the city of the future, and to put Dubai government entities ten years ahead of all others.
Twenty-six projects have been approved by HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of Dubai Executive Council and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of DFF, to be moved into pilot stages.
The new strategic partners will support the participating government entities and projects within the framework of DFF's full commitment to support all initiatives, projects and government efforts, and accelerate the pace of work.
Commenting on the announcement, Abdulaziz Al Jaziri, Deputy CEO and Chief of Projects of DFF, highlighted that these strategic partnerships are an important addition and a qualitative boost to the Dubai 10X initiative.
"The initiative succeeded in providing a platform that brings together various government organisations in Dubai and gives them the opportunity to coordinate and collaborate among teams and unify visions and objectives to provide joint government services in line with the objectives of Dubai 10X. The initiative also contributes to launching new joint initiatives that support Dubai's vision in becoming a hub for innovation and government excellence," added Al Jaziri.
The second phase of the initiative is based on strengthening the cooperation of the Dubai 10X teams in various government organisations in Dubai through the exchange of experiences, skills, and resources, within a common framework aimed at introducing and launching joint initiatives covering key sectors affecting the quality of human life. These include: Health, emergency, community life, infrastructure, sustainability, education, among others.
